New essay: Seven theses on the Fediverse and the becoming of FLOSS

Recently, @rra and I have been working on an essay highlighting questions about the and how these are getting entangled with practices. From software production to structure and governance within alternative social media, online communities and politics.

The text follows a multi theses model, to map the different things we've been looking at and publish the current state of our research.

It is the closing chapter of a new publication from INC/Transmediale (networkcultures.org/blog/publi)

PDF of the text: monoskop.org/images/c/cc/Manso

Feedback welcome. We're planning to publish an online version with more references!

Thanks everyone for voting, even the cheaters with dormant .social accounts.

Let's get this show on the road, find a way to pump your mpv's, mplayer's and vlc's into an old boombox, dust of your old kangol hat and let's hit it.

To comfort the dissapointed I shall start the show with some truly weird 80s electro by the mysterious Danan Potts.

I have been streaming every Friday night on echo.lurk.org and will probably keep doing this for as long as I have records and the time to pick and play them.

Its a comfy little stream with a few listeners, knowing who listens and what they enjoy makes picking songs more direct.

Since I have never ran a successful poll on here, I will try again.
Next Friday the Theme of the stream should be:

The Work of Art in the Age of COVID-19, coming soon to the ever popular Journal of Opportunistic Studies.

Don't miss the 2021 CFP.

Last night I ran a 2 hour livestream and Q&A with some friends, teaching the basics of threat modelling in crisis. If you missed it, there's a replay here online for 14 days:
